1. As a student at UT, you should always join at least one club. This way you can get to know at least a small amount of people. If you're in a tight knit club then you'll end up going places, like parties, together. 2. Don't be afraid to approach people in you classes and introduce yourself. It's always good to have at least one friend in each class. 3. Create study groups with friends and study ahead of time before you go out and party that way you don't fall behind in your school work. 4. Go to your...

    Former graduate student of Dr. Michelle Lane in the Nutrition Program at UT and Texas State University (dropped out). She did not make tenure at UT. Worked in her lab, like all other students in the lab I was also unable to repeat any experiments published . Was verbally and psychologically abused on several occasions for bringing up research inconsistencies. She threatened to fire me several times (another graduate student was fired). I Spoke to my colleagues at ICMB at UT. Confirmed my suspicions all along, that she cooks up data and was fired because of that and for blaming the chair and other faculty of the department. A friend at UT, confirmed seeing an internal memo from ORI investigating her and a letter of inquiry from NIH in his mentors office. Posts all kind of random and insulting details about students on her facebook page. She insulted a student publicly online on facebook for making an honest simple mistake. I quit working with her ASAP to save my career, considering the impending fallout from State and Federal investigation. Glad they kicked her out of the program. Loved my school but hated my time in her lab.

    This school is nice and close to many great places. Also the campus is huge so you can get lost really fast. This university should be in your top 5 at least.

    The University of Texas is the best school because of the variety of majors that are offered considering that Austin is a city known for technology. Out of all of the other colleges I visited, and compared to the college I used to attend, I noticed how diverse UT is when it comes to the students and the employees. Discrimination is a controversial topic these days and as soon as one steps on campus, he or she can tell how multicultural the university is. That speaks volumes about the character and integrity of The University of Texas.
